11:04 pm
we have crews throughout the city and one in detroit, covering the oakland as. we want to begin with jamie sire who is at at&t park for the giants who suffered a tough loss. >> reporter: normally when the opposing pitcher leaves after eight pitches, it would bode well for the home team. unfortunately for the giants, they could not capitalize on that early opportunity and they do drop game one against the reds. >> they lost the starter there. you know, they brought in a pretty good one, too. latos is tough and when you're in the first game, just like us, we had starters who could go tonight. and he is available. and he came and did a great job on us. >> obviously we did not expect it. we expected to face both of them
11:05 pm
so it is not like you know, latos wasn't going to pitch later in the series anyways. >> reporter: despite the loss, this team was encouraged by the way they were able to rally back in the late innings and hoping that that momentum can maybe carry over into sunday's game. the a's meanwhile also dropping their first game of the postseason in detroit and kate longworth has more on that. >> reporter: justin verlander was pitching on an extra day of rest but it didn't take him long to find his rhythm keeping the a's off balance. bob admitted that his players were frustrated at the plate but that will happen to you when you have 14 strikeouts on the night. 11 of those coming to verlander. >> he has the ability to shut it down when he needs to. he kind of cruises and does what he has to to get whatever to get a couple runners on. >> sometimes you just have to tip your hat and obviously, he gets tipped to a lot.
11:06 pm
and he did that. >> same pitcher he's been in his whole career. he is using them conveniently for him and using them well. he reached back to the pitches that he needed to get. he is not the guy that is going to keep you from getting on base. when we did, he reached out and made the pitches he needs to make. >> reporter: as for the a's pitching staff interesting first reliever bob melvin call upon was pat nishack who made his first appearance since losing his son earlier this week. and he said it felt like no other as he felt like someone upstairs was looking down on him. nbc bay area news. >> and they are part of our team at comcast sportsnet. that's the spot for the best preand postgame coverage of the giants and the a's. there's plenty more to do in san francisco as well. let's bring in meteorologist rob for a quick look at the forecast. and can we expect a repeat of today? >> i wish we could have a day just as beautiful today.

take a look at this dramatic surveillance video shows that white pickup truck slamming into the front of a liquor store, shootering the glass and coming with that inches of hitting the clerk. the crash happened around 10:00 last night in carmichael near sacramento. witnesses say the driver of the passenger took off after the crash. chp officers tracked down the suspected driver. a 34-year-old robert ring. he was arrested for felony hit and run and suspicion of driving under the influence. as for the clerk, he was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital and released. it had to be pretty scary though. september was a blockbuster fundraising month for president obama. the campaign announced it raised $181 million. that's the highest monthly total of the re-election campaign. the monthly haul was likely
11:25 pm
boosted by tv exposure during the democratic national convention. a romney campaign spokesman said it has not released the september totals but noted in a tweet that romney raised $12 million in the 48 hours after the debate. both candidates are still talking about the latest unemployment numbers. the jobless rate is now below 8%. the president was thrilled with the news while the republican nominee was skeptical. >> more americans are entering the work forceful more americans are getting jobs. >> the number of people in america, the participation of our adults in the work force were the same as at the time he got elected. why our unemployment rate would be 11%. president obama is set to return to the bay area monday night. he will be fundraising at a concert in san francisco at the bill graham auditorium along with some high priced private fund-raisers. with the first presidential debate behind us, it is time for our factor fiction segment. mitt romney said during the
11:26 pm
debate that president obama promised he would cut the deficit in half. and romney went on to say, unfortunately, he doubled it. first things first. the president did pledge shortly after he took office that he would cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. did he? he did not cut it in half but he did not double i either. if you used the congressional budget office's projections for the deficit at the time the president took office, the deficit has dropped slightly. about 8%. if you use the fiscal year 2009, after months after he took office, it down by 25%. so there. so there are countless reasons to spend time in san francisco this weekend and one of them is america's cup. nbc bay area's lawrence scott has a look. >> thank you so much. it was a tremendous day of racing. full of spills and chills and an action packed day. there is one champion crowned and another right on the doorstep. it was an absolutely wild day of racing on the america's cup
